Optibus and Liftango Partner to Deliver Integrated Fixed-Route and On-Demand Transport Platform

  • Optibus and Liftango partnership delivers integrated fixed-route and on-demand bus platforms to clients across APAC

As public transit operations increasingly incorporate on-demand components to complement their fixed-route operations, Optibus – a cloud-native AI platform powering mass transportation operations in over 450 cities around the world – has partnered with Liftango, a leading APAC shared mobility provider.

The two organisations combine to give public transport agencies and operators an innovative approach to fleet optimisation.

Optibus’ platform uses artificial intelligence to reduce costs and boost service quality by improving the efficiency of transit networks and schedules. This includes planning routes, building timetables, scheduling vehicles and crews, as well as improving working conditions for drivers to increase retention.

Liftango brings to the table its dynamic vehicle scheduling and routing expertise, allowing passengers to book trips when and where they want.  From here, vehicles are automatically dispatched and sent to the passenger location ‘on-demand’.

The partnership with Liftango complements the planning and cost analysis of large, fixed-route public transport networks by meeting the needs of passengers who are not adequately served by other public transport options. This increases network coverage and ridership while using resources more efficiently, yielding greater cost savings for transport operators and agencies.

Co-Founder and CEO of Liftango, Kevin Orr, said:

Offering an integrated system to enable Public Transport Agencies and Operators to improve the efficiency of a mixed bus network will allow for greater access to transport and give members of society a more sustainable way to move around. Partnering with Optibus enables us to provide the maximum benefit to passengers as well as transport providers.

As public transport networks continue to adopt on-demand solutions as part of their service offering, efficient design and implementation is needed in order to complement and not cannibalise existing services.

Optibus CEO and co-founder, Amos Haggiag, said:

We’re excited to announce Liftango as our latest on-demand partner. We look forward to working with Liftango to break down the silos between fixed-route and on-demand transportation, and offer a stronger, more comprehensive solution together.

This partnership will extend within the APAC region – where both Liftango and Optibus have a strong market presence.
